All employees are required to report possible or actual violations of the code of conduct to the responsible department or compliance officer without delay, regardless of whether they relate to them personally or to their colleagues. There is also an anonymous whistleblower system managed by an independent party for the
reporting of possible compliance violations. Both employees and external parties such as business partners can report suspected compliance violations to Evonik without any technical risks that their identity will be disclosed. Anonymous reports are possible on all key compliance issues and are automatically forwarded to the department responsible for the relevant compliance topic.
Evonik investigates all alleged violations and treats all information with the greatest possible confidentiality. We do not tolerate any disadvantage to employees who report possible or actual violations or cooperate in the investigation of such violations.
The electronic Whistleblower System can be used to report potential compliance violation worldwide in 20 languages and anonymously if required. The electronic Whistleblower System is managed by a third party supplier. All data supplied in a report is maintained on secure servers in Germany. All reported content is handled exclusively by Evonik.
